Aww, I like how it has a tone of nostalgia and dork-appreciation rather than sneering disapproval.

I still filed the RSS feed in the "Mockery" folder of my RSS reader, though, so who knows what that means.

Why do I have to sudden urge to give someone in the IT department a swirlie?

You haven't lived until you've spent a day pretending to be He-Man wearing only your underwear and wielding a sword.

It's only a matter of time before ColdChef uploads his picture of himself in his Star Wars bedroom.

Oh, wait; I already did it for him. Never mind.

Snark-free nostalgia is always appreciated.

That's awesome. Thanks, carsonb.

It's funny, I've been thinking about nostalgia recently. But since I'm raising kids, I'm thinking of *their* future nostalgia. Threadless Ts are cool now, but how dorky will they seem in 2025 (if man is still alive)?

Did anyone notice that there was not one single black child with a computer? That kind of killed it for me.

This made me both want and be glad that there is no picture of me as a 3rd grader with my Sonic 2 t-shirt. (You got the t-shirt if you pre-ordered, I thought it was incredibly cool.)

That most certainly is MeFi's own Steve Wozniak.

Makes me nostalgic for my HeathKit 8086/8088. We had Compuserve at a blazing 1200 Baud.

I was dissapointed that they didn't post the matching picture to the one of me at the TRS-80 in "computer camp" (held at the local high school).

If you click through to the Flickr page there's a link to a picture of me (as a high school senior) at the same table in the same lab nine years later, but in front of a PS/2 Model 25.

Of course, when the later picture was taken, I *ran* the lab.
